When the. saloons went out of
business in the new state of Okla
hotna under the prohibition clause
of the constitution, one Guthrie
saloon flaunted lone streamers of
crape on its doors. In its big plate-
glass windows on the last night
that it was open, a big barrel, heav

empty glass beneath its open faucet.
On it a large placard was mounted: continue this policy and keep these

There are two reasons which

This was an unusual motto one
symbolizing the destruction of its
business. Though the saloon
keeper did not mean it to do so, it
inevitably suggested the usual and
fitting saloon motto to be just the
opposite, like this: "Everything
coming in and nothing going out.' '
The truth of this second motto will
be apparent to anyone who has ever
watched a saloon entrance. Money
goes into the saloon in quantities,
day after day strength and respect

promise and hope go in but no one

the value of the job. It is the

Another reason that every man
who is looking for a square deal, in
these strenuous times in the fitnni'
cial world, should vote for John
Manning, is the position he took in
the late financial disturbance, and
the active part he took in the settle
ment of the affairs of the banks
which failed in Portland, whereby
the depositors will eventually re
ceive every dollar they placed in
these banks. Largely was this the
result of Mr. Manning s efforts,
and he should have proper credit
for it. We arc too apt to forget

slies a love for his native laud,
who desires the pcrictuity of his

perpetuate this monster evil in St.
Johns? No, we do not believe
such men will vote for saloons in
St. Johns. They will not prosti
tute the power the constitution of
the United States gives them to
such a base purpose.
1 he claim is made that if we
vote the soloons out they will go
just outside the city limits and we
will have all the evil without the
revenue. Vote them out and see.
It is up to the people whether we
have the evils if we put the evil
out. The evil doers will soon tire
of the consequences If the citizens
enforce the laws. Put the curse
from among you. Such action has
never met with disaster.
